I saw that earlier and stuck it out on a listserv. Here's what I have gotten so far:

Interesting question, [TOOTMO]. If she were to RECORD a cover of a song, that would be subject to a compulsory license under section 115 of the Copyright Act. Most live performances are handled by the performance rights organizations such as BMI and ASCAP, but I don't think that the license there is compulsory.


Of course she could've sang the song. And faced any consequences for doing so. But that'd be a different drama altogether. Regardless, they'd've come out very, very far ahead monetarily. Frankly, I'm a bit confused as to why the network's attorneys didn't clear the use ahead of time...
But here's the BIG-BIG question: Do we think Reed expected them to NOT go on with the show after telling them "No" with less than 2 hours to

What I don't understand is how is that different from Jerry covering a Beatles tune or any band doing a Zeppelin cover during a show at the spur of the moment?

I'll let you know if I actually get a response that answers more questions than it raises---effin lawyers for ya!

However, Lou will (for a small fee I imagine) pose for the cover of a Kung Fu magazine (http://www.renguangyi.com/ren%20image/mag%20-%20KF2003Jun_cover.jpg)

I really should have gotten the cover for "Secret of Hung Men". My agent really sucks.
